Any Republican who votes for Cap and Trade is a complete sellout because Cap and Trade is big government industrial policy that reaches into everybody's home...
Kirk knew that, he was the one of the ones who was getting all these calls. And he defied the people.
Unfortunately, Kirk's record of recklessness is not limited to his support for Cap and Trade. Let's review who Kirk really is, via Free Republic:
If conservatives come out early next week in an organized fashion, throw a pile of targeted money into Illinois, and rapidly drive up Pat Hughes’ name identification, the polling in Illinois suggests Hughes will win.
He is not polling well against Kirk right now, but then he has significantly lower name identification. All the polling suggests Kirk’s support is very weak and once people find out about Hughes, they break overwhelmingly for Hughes.
